The prehistoric lair of a gargantuan sea creature may have been found in the depths of the ocean.

The remains of large prehistoric ichthyosaurs displaying injuries indicative of a large octopus-like creature suggest the legendary Kraken might have more of a basis in reality than previously thought. If confirmed, the beasts would have been up to 100 feet long, dwarfing today's largest denizen of the depths - the colossal squid.

"A giant sea monster, the likes of the mythological kraken, may have swum Earth's ancient oceans, snagging what was thought to be the sea's top predators school bus-size ichthyosaurs with fearsome teeth."

We have explored less than 10% of the deep ocean. But to argue a point. The billed whale has been seen only three times since the early 1900's. And they know they exist now in larger pods due to having caught a pod on video just a few months ago. So to condem anything else that we or the "scientists" dont know about. Seems kind of ignorant to me when you really think about it. Especially when these are top water whales that are almost as large as Killer whales. I'm just saying...

I have read so many accounts of this creature from ships logs that I am convinced it exists. The ships log is sacrosanct to any Skipper. I have never ​read any erroneous logs. l_octopus_by_Pierre_Denys_de_Montfort.jpg]

That's an alligator gar with a human foot photoshopped onto it, which was digitally inserted into an unrelated photo of a guy.

Might other mythological creatures also have some semblance of truth to them. If the Kraken could possibly have existed whose to say Leviathan didn't also? It'll be a long time before these antediluvian secrets are given up.
